We have available 4 different styles of hitching posts. These are made up items using cast iron reproduction horse heads mounted on steel pipe. We carry them because the old hitching posts are way up in price and not easy to find. They are priced at $70.00, $90.00, and $100.00. All posts stand between 5 and 6 feet in height and are black except as noted.
